This monograph gives the details of the bacteriologic and serologic study, conducted in the bacteriologic laboratory of the Norwegian army, of a large number of staphylococci from different sources with particular reference to furunculosis. Three main serologic types of staphylococci were found, one of which includes the strains isolated from furunculosis, osteomyelitis and purulent inflammations of the skin as well as mucous membranes, especially of the nose. In thirty-five cases of furunculosis the nose contained staphylococci of the same kind as those found in the furuncles, and the view is advanced that the nose may be an important source of the staphylococci causing furunculosis and that there may be nasal staphylococcus carriers. The treatment of furunculosis with staphylococcic vaccines gave apparently good immediate results but did not prevent relapses. Neither vaccine nor bacteriophage had any appreciable effect on the staphylococci in the nose. Other phases of pathogenic staphylococci are discussed
